Arkansas: The Natural State
Arkansas is indeed a natural state with more than 2.9 million acres in three national forests, 600,000 acres of lakes, 9,000 miles of streams and rivers and 1,500 miles of hiking trails. With an abundant population of game animals, hunters from around the world come to duck hunt in Stuttgart, trout fish the White River and hook a trophy hybrid bass on Lake Ouachita. Other natural wonders of the state include some of the worlds’ finest quartz crystals (here in the Ouachita region) and the only diamond mine open to the public (near Murfreesboro).
And sitting at the heart of the state, Hot Springs Village is in the center of it all!
